Overcoming self doubt is one of those things that is easier said than done. Oftentimes we see strengths and talents in others that we ourselves possess yet fail to give ourselves credit for. When it comes to our skills and talents, why should we be humble? Why shouldn’t we excuse perpetual confidence in our abilities and our worth? How do we overcome the sense of doubt and uncertainty in order to seize opportunities for growth and advancement?
In the second part of the season 7 double episode premiere, actor, author, and entrepreneur Josh Peck explains how he had to overcome the doubt and uncertainty of his future in order to leverage his talents, tap into trends, and capitalize on his massive social media following.
Coming off the tails of a successful childrens’ show, Josh’s future was a blank slate at the ripe old age of 26 but rather than be excited about the prospect, without a show on the air, Josh feared he would live in a perpetual state of uncertainty filled with endless auditioning and its constant judgment. Josh could either submit to self doubt or he could take control. By collecting experiences, sage advice, and an assortment of supportive guides along the way, Josh was not only able to finally overcome self doubt but he was able to leverage his natural talent into financial success on his own terms.
